REPORT. 



Sacramento, October 3, 1888. 

To his Excellency R. W. Waterman, Governor of California: 

Sir: I have the honor to transmit the report of the Trustees of the 
State Library for the thirty-eighth and thirty-ninth fiscal years, ending 
June 30, 1888.

Secretary. 



REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF THE CALIFORNIA STATE LIBRARY. 



State Library, October 3, 1888. 

To his Excellency R. W. Waterman, Governor of California: 

We have the honor to submit the following report of this department 
for the thirty-eighth and thirty -ninth fiscal years, July 1, 1886, to June 
30, 1888, and also a statement of warrants drawn against the State Library 
Fund from April 6, 1882, to June 30, 1888. 

The number of volumes in the library on July 1, 1886, was 61,853. The 
accessions during the two fiscal years above named amount to 6,612, mak- 
ing a total of 68,465 volumes in the library June 30, 1888. 

The California Legislature, during its last session, passed an Act for the 
removal of the mineral cabinet from the State Library to the Crocker Art 
Gallery, and provided for the appointment of a Board of Trustees, consist- 
ing of three persons, to be known as the "Trustees of the Mineral Cabi- 
net." Accordingly, on the twenty-sixth day of April, 1887, the cabinet, 
including cases, specimens, and papers relating thereto, was delivered to 
said Board, and a receipt taken for the same. Room 64, thus made vacant, 
being mucb needed to supply additional shelf-room for the reception of 
books, we were compelled to have the work done, and paid for from the 
Library Fund. It may be well here to state that we find it impossible to 
obtain any portion of the sum biennially appropriated for improvements, 
repairs, etc., in the State Capitol. In consequence, all of our expenses for 
furnishing, cleaning, and repairs have to be paid from the Library Fund, 
thus making the expenditures from this fund more than they otherwise 
would be. It would lessen the amount of labor required for the proper 
care and preservation of the contents of the library if the driveway on 
the east side of the Capitol could be sprinkled, or in some manner improved, 
thereby securing greater immunity from dust. The conformation of the 
rear of the building makes the annoyance from this source, during the dry 
season of the year, very great. 

In regard to the character of the accessions made, we may now briefly 
speak. When making selections, we have borne in mind those topics 
wherein the library is deficient, and have sought to order with special 
reference to meeting the requirements of a reference library in a rapidly 
developing State. 

Much attention has been given to agriculture and kindred subjects. The 
number of volumes in the educational, musical, and medical departments 
has been largely augmented. Much attention has been devoted to the 
filling up and completion of our sets of periodicals, and at the same time 
our annual subscription list has been materially enlarged. Our collection 
of the publications known as " Bonn's Library" has been made as com- 
plete as was practicable. 

Many additions have been made to the collection of State and county 
maps, and to insure their preservation and to make them readily accessible 
for reference, all have been mounted on spring rollers and hung on brack- 
ets. Each is numbered and by this means can be found at once, after 
referring to the alphabetical index which has been made of them.

Shelves have been arranged for the reception of the large folio volumes 
of bound newspapers, and they have been so placed that each volume lies 
flat on its allotted shelf. Tbe rapid wear on the bindings experienced under 
the system formerly used, when each volume stood upright, is thus pre- 
vented. The choice folios which occupy the alcove known as the "art 
department" have been cared for. Each volume is now laid flat on a mov- 
able shelf covered with billiard cloth. Every shelf and volume is corre- 
spondingly numbered, so that there is no longer any difficulty in returning 
a book to its proper place. Having on hand many duplicate volumes of 
United States Government documents we, by request, supplied the library 
of the City of Los Angeles with a set as nearly approaching completion as 
we could make it, and the remainder were returned to the Department of 
the Interior at Washington. 

By Assembly Concurrent Resolution, No. 4, passed February 24, 1887, 
the Librarian of the California State Library was instructed to communi- 
cate with Librarians of the various State libraries in refererence to a confer- 
ence of State Librarians at such a time and place as should be agreed upon. 
In pursuance of this object a copy of the resolution, together with the fol- 
lowing letter, was sent to each State and Territorial Librarian. Similar 
communications were sent to distinguished members of the library profes- 
sion, as Hon. A. R. Spofford, Librarian of Congress; Dr. Wm. F. Poole, author 
of "Poole's Index" and Librarian of the Newberry Library; Prof. Melvil 
Dewey, Librarian of Columbus College Library, and author of " Decimal 
Classification;" Charles R. Cutter of the Boston Atheiueum Library, and 
others. 

The following is the text of the letter thus addressed: 



The Legislature of California, at its last session, adopted resolutions relating to a con- 
ference of the State Librarians of all the States in the Union, together with a preamble 
setting forth, in a general way, some of the benefits which would result from such a con- 
ference. By the terms of the second resolution I am directed officially, "to communicate 
with the Librarians of the various States, with a view of organizing such a conference, and 
providing for the time and place of meeting." It is in pursuance of this resolution, and 
to secure your cooperation in accomplishing the objects contemplated by the Legislature 
of California, that I now have the honor to address you. 

It has been suggested that a conference, such as that now proposed, be held in conjunc- 
tion with the American Library Association. I am of the opinion that no substantial 
benefits would result to these State institutions from such a united conference. The laws 
and rules governing the public libraries of the country not under State control differ 
radically from those of the latter, and from each other. What it is desirable to bring 
about, if practicable, is the enactment bv the Legislatures of the various States having 
these State institutions an approximately uniform system of laws, usages, and rules for 
their government, management, and control. The advantages which would result from 
such a system, and the disadvantages consequent upon the want of it, are obvious; and it 
is equally obvious that such a system will never be established except through the ener- 
getic cooperation of those having these State institutions in charge. One great desider- 
atum in all State Libraries is a complete set of the public documents, reports, laws, 
transactions, etc., published by authority of the Federal Government, and of the several 
States; and this is due to the want of proper laws in each State providing for a uniform 
system of exchange. In most cases where there is anv law at all upon the subject, pro- 
vision is made for the transmission of such matter to the Governor, Secretary of State, or 
some State official other than the Librarian, and it is only through the courtesy of the 
former that publications can find their way into the State Library; and thus it often 
occurs that the most valuable State publications are lost to these institutions. Works of 
this character are essential to the completeness anil utility of every public library. They 
are seldom found in bookstores, and their distribution should be under the control of the 
State Librarians, and it should be made a part of their official duty to see that they are 
properly addressed and promptly forwarded to every State Library in the Union. 

The prevailing mode of title paging and indexing public documents, and even private 
publications, is exceedingly perfunctory, inaccurate, and misleading. To such an extent 
is this criticism true that the index of a public document often affords no reliable guide 
at all to its contents, while a confiding purchaser is often and fraudulently beguiled into

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OP THE STATE LIBRARY.

the purchase of a publication materially different in character from that indicated by its 
title page. 

Legislative provision for the more liberal maintenance and support of these institutions 
would constitute an important subject for the consideration of the proposed conference. 
In some of the States they are supported by appropriations covering a given period of 
time. Experience has amply shown that this provisional system of support is grossly 
inadequate. The appropriations are usually made in lump sums, and without any refer- 
ence to the constantly increasing needs of' the library; they are usually exhausted long 
before the Legislature again convenes, and the succeeding appropriation is rarely, if ever, 
sufficient to supply the deficiency of standard publications issued in the interval, and to 
meet presetit and future demands. 

To keep a library abreast with the times, there should be a continually accumulating 
fund devoted to its use. This has been provided for in California by requiring the Secre- 
tary of State to pa)' into the State Treasury, monthly, all fees of his office, and they are 
set apart to a fund known as the "State Library Fund." By this means all standard pub- 
lications are added to the accumulations of the library as fast as they are issued, and it 
is kept up to the highest point of usefulness and excellence. 

As to the time and place of the meeting of the proposed conference, this, of course, can 
Only be determined upon a full interchange of the opinions and preferences of the several 
State Librarians. While I should, with alacrity, acquiesce in the expressed view and choice 
of a majority of them, I venture to suggest that, on many accounts, the city of Washing- 
ton would be the most advantageous place, and the month of April or May, 1888, a practi- 
cable time of meeting. By convening there, the Librarians would have the benefit of 
consultation with the Hon. A. B. Spoffbrd, now, and for many years past, Librarian of the 
Congressional Library ; and his suggestions and advice could not fail to be of great value 
in the deliberations of the conference. Moreover, each Librarian would see then for himself 
the vast number and variety of public documents now lost to each State Library from the 
General Government by reason of the indifference of the State, or its inability, under the 
existing system of exchange, to procure them. I deem it proper to add in this connection, 
that the proposed conference meets with the cordial approbation of Mr. Spoflord, and am 
assured that he would meet with it if held in Washington, and lend it all the assistance in 
his power. 

In concluding this communication, permit me to urge upon you the action on the part 
of the State Librarians, proposed by the Legislature of California, and to solicit your earn- 
est cooperation in the accomplishment of the salutary ends in view. I have addressed a 
like communication to each State Librarian in the Union, and requested, as I now respect- 
fully request of you, an early reply, conveying your views as to the practicability and 
expediency of the conference proposed, and, if favorable thereto, your preference as to 
the time and place of convening it. 

I have the honor to be your obedient servant, 

TALBOT H. WALLIS, 

State Librarian of California. 

The replies to this communication were very favorable to the projected 
meeting. Subjoined is an extract from the letter of the Secretary of the 
American Library Association, Professor Melvil Dewey: 
T. H. Wallis: 

Dear Sir: I have read your circular with great interest. All you say is more than true, 
and the work is greatly needed. All success to you in your good work. We will encour- 
age all we can, but I advise you that you make the meeting with ours next year. It will 
be cheaper and better. Things peculiar can be discussed in State section; general ques- 
tions that apply to all alike in general session. I wish you great success. 
Sincerely, 

MELVIL DEWEY. 

From Dr. Wm. F. Poole, then President of the American Library Asso- 
ciation, the following was received: 

CmcAtiO, August 9, 1887. 

T. H. Wallis: 

Dear Sir: I received your letter of July twenty-eighth, and accompanying resolution. 
I can see no possible objection to the conference of State Librarians, which is proposed to 
be held, but, on the other hand, I can see many advantages which will grow out of it. I 
wonder the scheme has not been thought of before, for the American Library Association 
has had very little sympathy or support from the State Librarians. The effort you are 
making will wake them up, and when they are once awake they will be glad to avail them- 
selves of the privileges of the American Library Association and conference of State Libra- 
rians. As President of the American Library Association, I most cordially congratulate 
you who have devised this scheme for the proposed conference, and I shall be glad to 
assist you in any way I can. 

Yours truly, 

WM. F. POOLE. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE STATE LIBRARY. 



Hon. A. R. Spofford wrote: " Your letter received. It ie a good idea, one 
that will accomplish great results. State Librarians are much in need of 
a conference for discussing library matters. You have my hearty support, 
and I am certain the American Library Association will do all in its power 
to aid the conference." 

Other letters of an equally encouraging nature were received. The ina- 
bility of a sufficient number of Librarians to meet in convention last May 
made it impossible to have the conference at that time; but an effort, will 
be made to hold it with the American Library Association at St. Louis, in 
May, 1889. 

The growth of the Law Department has continued steady and uniform. 
When outstanding orders have been filled, we think we can safely say that 
it will not suffer from comparison with any in our country. A copy of the 
catalogue (of the completion of which we spoke in our last report) has 
been sent to each State Library, the Library of Congress, a number of public- 
libraries, and to the Justices of the United States Supreme Court. Copies 
have by request also been sent to attorneys in this country and in England.

California State Library, { 
October 3, 1888. | 

To the honorable Board of Trustees of the California State Library: 

Gentlemen: I have the honor to submit the following as my report upon 
the cataloguing, classification, condition of library and Library Fund, and 
foreign exchanges of the California State Library. Before commencing the 
preparation of the author catalogue, now in hand, the want of a new one 
was plainly apparent. To ascertain whether a given book was in the 
library, it was necessary to consult four separate alphabets. 

First, the old printed catalogue, which was in many cases inaccurate, 
and not at all compiled in accordance with the now generally accepted rules. 
Second, a printed supplement; third, a written supplement, and, finally, 
a card supplement. Accordingly, at a meeting of the Board of Trustees, 
in 1885, after a thorough discussion of the subject, I was authorized to 
commence the preparation of a new catalogue. As to that of the Law 
Department, I was given complete discretionary authority. No restric- 
tions were placed upon me, either as to the manner of making it, or the 
personnel. I drew up a plan for the work, and to its prosecution, even in 
its minutest detail, I gave my personal attention. The result of these 
labors was given to the world in 1886, and the comments upon it of those 
qualified to express an opinion have been most gratifying. The Board of 
Trustees appointed two assistants, to commence work on the catalogue of 
the General Department, and directed that they should, in so far as was 
possible, use the material of the old printed catalogue and the card sup- 
plement. This plan was soon shown to be infeasible, as by no process of 
contortion could the cards in this manner be made uniform. I informed 
the Board that it was useless to pursue this method further, and that little 
use could be made of the work already done. The many difficulties 
encountered in the preparation of a catalogue are seldom realized by 



REPORT OP THE TRUSTEES OF THE STATE LIBRARY.

those not conversant with the work. It will be readily understood that, 
in order to attain a high degree of usefulness, the catalogue must be 
made on some well defined plan, which must be consistently followed 
throughout. The larger the library, the more is the necessity of adhering 
to the method adopted. The experience of a prominent eastern librarian 
was so nearly duplicated in this instance that I cannot refrain from 
quoting a statement made by him: 

"Sometimes they took the title from the hack of the hook, sometimes from the title page, 
sometimes from the half title, and sometimes, apparently, from their own imaginations. 
They omitted freely, of course, and altered the order of words for the purpose of omitting 
They spent no time on the investigation of authors' full names, nor in the discovery of 
authors of anonymous and pseudonymous books, nor did they trouble themselves about 
cataloguing rules." 

After consultation and deliberation, the Board decided that I goon with 
the work, making as few changes as possible. On July 23, 1887, the sub- 
ject of the catalogue was again brought up, and a resolution was passed 
making the Librarian responsible for the faithful performance of their 
duties by those engaged in the preparation of the catalogue. Feeling 
entire authority in the matter, I adopted and had printed a system of 
rules for cataloguing derived mainly from those of the American Library 
Association, and the work since done has been in conformity with these 
rules. This includes all the volumes on the main floor of the General 
Library, those in the " Political Room," the United States and various State 
documents, the Engineering Department, and also 4,795 volumes that 
have been added to the library since August, 1887. I am happy to state 
that the cards are now all written, and that the work of comparison and 
revision is now in progress. 

The material will shortly be ready for the printer. This revision for 
the portions of the library above enumerated can be accomplished rap- 
idly; but for the remainder — for reasons already stated — more time will 
be required. 

In addition to the regular work of cataloguing, I am preparing an index 
to the legislative documents of this State, the need for which has long been 
felt. For years I have been endeavoring to obtain a complete list of the 
statutory laws of the several States, but the information thus far has been 
meager and unsatisfactory. I have recently prepared a correct list of the 
legislative documents and statutory laws of this State. A copy of this 
has been forwarded to each State Librarian, with the expressed desire that 
he compile and return to me a similar one for his own State. The fol- 
lowing is from the communication thus sent September 20, 1888: " Unless 
this is done by Librarians, there is no other mode of ascertaining what is 
a complete list, as it is not likely that any person will travel from State to 
State to make it. The necessary information cannot always be gained 
from the title pages of the session laws, .for there may be ' called sessions,' 
' adjourned sessions,' ' extra serious,' etc., bound with the laws of the regu- 
lar session, without anything indicating where they are to be found. It is 
safe to say that there is not a State Library which has a complete set of 
the statutory laws of the States and Territories — another convincing argu- 
ment that Librarians must do this work. 

The library has never been classified by any of the now approved meth- 
ods. The need for a rational and systematic arrangement of the books has 
been very apparent, but it was impracticable to undertake such a classifi- 
cation while the cataloguing was in progress. As soon, however, as the 
manuscript has been, delivered to the printer, it is proposed to systematic- 
ally rearrange the volumes in the library. The general classes will be 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE STATE LIBRARY. 



subdivided as extendedly as seems to be demanded by the wealth of the 
library on each topic. For example: The volumes relating to agriculture, 
which are now shelved in one alphabetical series, will be grouped under 
the following heads: 

AGRICULTURE. 

(General works, dictionaries, and cyclopedias.) 

Agricultural chemistry 
Animals. 
Buildings. 
Fibrous plants. 
Fruit. 
Garden. 



Grain. 

Manures. 

Trees. 

Vegetables. 

Viticulture. 

Periodicals. 



Under each head the volumes will be arranged alphabetically by au- 
thors, and to preserve the arrangement each will be given a class designa- 
tion and author Dumber. Thus Liebig's Agricultural Chemistry will bear 
a label marked: The number is ascertained from a prepared 

table, by use of which the alphabetical and numerical orders correspond. 
We have already provided some shelf label holders, and each shelf" will 
bear the name of topic under which the volumes upon it are classed. 
Finally, a plan will be drawn, on which will be designated the location of 
the divisions and subdivisions, so that the arrangement of the library may 
be seen at a glance. I have been in communication with department 
officers iti England and Australia, for the purpose of perfecting a system 
of exchanges, and I trust the library will soon receive some of their many 
valuable publications, as for example, those on education, irrigation, for- 
estry, agriculture, health, etc. 

The Secretary of State, in his report dated July 1, 1888, assumes, with- 
out foundation, that this library "is well stocked with books;" and, labor- 
ing under this mistake, recommends that the law be changed so as to 
permit the application of a portion of the library fund to be used for beau- 
tifying the State grounds. While it is true, as stated, that the library 
book register shows upwards of 69,000 volumes, it must not be forgotten 
that in this number are included the many thousand volumes of United 
States and State documents and books of the Law Department. The 
value of these is limited to special fields, and when due allowance is made 
it will be readily perceived that we have much to acquire before we can 
consider the library "well stocked" and worthy to rank among the best of 
our country. The fact will be made more evident, perhaps, by an exami- 
nation of the following list, showing the number of volumes contained in 
some of the more important libraries of the world in 1886:

This state of affairs is sufficient to convince any one familiar with libra- 
ries that we have but a nucleus, much needed additions to which demand 
an outlay of thousands of dollars. This has long been realized by your 
honorable Board and myself, but for obvious reasons it has been deemed 
advisable to delay purchasing extensively until after the catalogue, now 
under way, has been printed. Californians justly take great pride in their 
State and its institutions, and I think no one could desire to see its library 
hampered or the extent of its usefulness lessened. Rather do they wish 
to see it liberally endowed and enabled to rank among libraries as high 
as does our State among States. 

There should have been prepared and presented with this report a list 
of books received by exchange and donation. I am prevented from mak- 
ing this list at the present time, as the State Controller has in his posses- 
sion for examination the register of books; but as soon as the register is 
returned, I shall prepare a supplementary report and present the same for 
your consideration. 

With grateful appreciation of the interest you have taken in the welfare 
of the California State Library, I have the honor to remain your obedient 
servant, 

TALBOT H. WALLIS.
